WORLD ORDER IN BEING research and discovery. I write research, but by that I mean that double-barrelled attack upon ignorance, the biological attack and the physical attack, that is generally known as cc Science ". " Science " comes to us from those academic Dark Ages when men had to console themselves for their ignorance by pretending that there was a limited amount of knowledge in the world, and little chaps in caps and gowns strutted about, bachelors who knew a passable lot, masters who knew a tremendous lot and doctors in crimson gowns who knew all that there was to be known. Now it is manifest that none of us know very much, and the more we look into what we think we know, the more hitherto undetected things we shall find lurking in our assumptions. Hitherto this business of research, which we call the " scientific world ", has been in the hands of very few workers indeed. I throw out the suggestion that in our present-day world, of all the brains capable of great and masterful contributions to "scientific" thought achievement, brains of the quality of Rutherford's, or Darwin's or Mendel's or or Leonardo's or Galileo's, not one in a not one in a score of thousands, ever gets into such conditions as to realise its opportuirilks.
